What to Do with Elevated Creatinine Level? This Treatment Can Make Your Kidneys BetterWhat to do with elevated creatinine level? This treatment can make your kidneys better and better, and keep dialysis far away.

"Protein does not turn negative, creatinine does not come down", this is like two big mountains on the body of kidney patients. And a sustained rise in creatinine is worse because time is running out for patients. Before solving this problem, let's look at the staging of chronic renal failure.

When creatinine begins to rise more than normal, it means that it has entered chronic renal failure, which can be divided into the following stages based on the level of creatinine.

133-177umol/L is the compensatory stage of renal function

186-442umol/L is the decompensation period of renal function

443-707umol/L is the stage of renal failure

Over 707umol/L is uremia

Why does creatinine rise?

Creatinine is a product of muscle metabolism. When meat intake is stable and there is no significant change in muscle metabolism in the body, creatinine production is relatively constant. And it is only passed out by kidneys. So the rise of creatinine basically represents a decrease in glomerular filtration.

Because the kidneys have a strong compensatory function, a slight decrease in glomerular filtration is not enough to cause an increase in creatinine. Creatinine rises only when the glomerular filtration rate drops below half the normal level, so the rise in creatinine usually means the disease enters the stage of renal insufficiency.

Besides, serum creatinine is usually referred with urea nitrogen. When both of them elevate, generally it is considered to be entering renal failure.

But as the disease progresses to a new stage, the idea remains that "protein turning to negative". Urinary protein can turn negative, but creatinine can no longer decline. Even if there is a slight decline, it will rise again.

Therefore, we should stabilize creatinine level and prevent it increasing.

Is kidney failure incurable?

No, the rise in creatinine is due to severe damage to the glomerular filtration rate, so preventing kidney function from declining and renal cell necrosis is the most important thing in this period.

And you had better use Chinese medicine to recuperate, which can clear up immune complexes deposition in the kidneys by activating blood flow to remove meridian obstruction. It can also promote micro-circulation to improve renal ischemia, stop renal cell necrosis, and make existing renal cell function. Renal function is no longer continue to fall, creatinine won't rise again, and illness condition is stable at current stage. This is our main treatment goal in kidney failure stage.
